C. PRAGUE 1116

Post contacted the Czech MFA office of Human Rights and
Transition Policy to reiterate our position and concerns
about amendments to our UNGA resolution condemning the use of
rape as an instrument of state policy. The Czechs, who are
cosponsoring this resolution, did not have an immediate
response to our demarche. Gabriela Dlouha, Director of this
MFA office, is in NY handling negotiations for the Czechs on
UN Third Committee matters. She received our details and we
anticipate that she will be in touch with USUN or post if she
has any questions or concerns.

Campbell On: the US demonising of Iran

Satan may not exist, but the Evil One has always been a handy tool for priests and politicians alike. Currently, Iran is the latest bogey conjured up by Washington to (a) justify its foreign policy interventions and (b) distract attention from its foreign policy failures. More
